AlertVU test scheduled for March 28

Vanderbilt University Public Safety will conduct a test of the AlertVU emergency notification system on Thursday, March 28, at 2 p.m.

AlertVU rapidly sends notification messages in the event of an imminent threat or danger to the Vanderbilt community, such as an active shooter.

All Vanderbilt students, faculty and staff are automatically enrolled in the system using their Vanderbilt email address.

Cell phone numbers provided by students to the university are also automatically entered in the AlertVU database. Faculty and staff can register other contact points, such as cell or home phone numbers or personal email accounts to receive AlertVU messages when they are away from their Vanderbilt email accounts.

Please be sure to update emergency contact information annually. VUMC employees can update their information through their Personal Profile on C2HR.
